Islamabad, Aug 2: Referring to media reports that the Pakistani army is moving away from the notion of strategic depth in Afghanistan, an editorial in a Pakistani daily has said that if this proves true, it would reflect a recognition by the military that the dynamics of the situation have changed.
Additionally, according to the editorial in the Daily Times, a Taliban push for exclusive power in Kabul after 2014 would also ignite fresh conflict from which Pakistan may not escape unscathed.
The editorial said that recognition could perhaps open the door for Pakistan to be part of the endgame in a positive way, rather than at odds with its ostensible western allies. This may prove the better outcome, both for Afghanistan as well as Pakistan, not to mention the region and the world, it said. (ANI)
